Dear Loislane

Lactulose works well, depening on size 1-10ml 2-3 times daily.

I find that eco lax works well. it is available from vets and dischem. I have a german shepard. and it worked on him. Try giving some natural Yogurt as well to help with the bacteria in his gut. Dogs love yogurt and it is good for them to

And what exactly do you mean by ' constipation' ? I don' t suppose you watch him all the time... how often does he ' go' ? What symptoms do you notice?

Changing his diet might also help. What does he eat now ?
